The goal of the proposed assignment is, in cooperation with the World Banks Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) team, to produce a comprehensive report on innovative technological solutions for decarbonizing industries in World Bank Group client countries. The report should present the existing innovative solutions for decarbonizing the industrial sector that are on different technology readiness levels (TRL), starting with TRL 3, and show how the WBG operations teams can use those solutions and in which sectors. The report should focus on solutions that have a high green-house gas emissions abatement potential and high scalability in developing countries. For the identified technologies the report should address present costs and any other barriers to deployment, examples of policies/regulations could foster adoption, and experiences from strategies for moving up TRLs. Prospects for future costs decreases also need to be included.

Burundi has over 900 health centers and more than 1,400 secondary and vocational schools, out of which the majority is not electrified. The World Bank seeks to hire the services of a firm to i) take stock of the electrification status and overall energy use of Health and Education Facilities in Burundi and ii) to design standardized solar-powered service packages to meet their current and future needs. The assignment should assess a representative share of those unelectrified facilities. A particular emphasis will be put on ways to ensure maintenance and operation of the systems, as one of the big challenges for long-term project success.

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) is a donor-funded global knowledge and technical assistance program, administered by the World Bank. ESMAP provides analytical and advisory services to low- and middle-income countries to increase their know-how and institutional capacity to achieve environmentally sustainable energy solutions for poverty reduction and economic growth. ESMAP is commissioning an external evaluation of its program. The objective of the evaluation is to draw lessons from the operational processes and implementation of the FY17-20 Business Plan, including the achievement of the intended results and the efficiency of operational processes, and use the conclusions and recommendations for reflection, learning and strategic adaptation of the program for the next business plan. The ESMAP Program Secretariat and the Consultative Group will be the primary users of the evaluation.

- Floating solar technologies are paving the way to significantly scale up the use of solar energy around the world, especially in countries with high population density and where land is a constraint
- This first-of-its-kind market report estimates the global potential of floating solar, even under conservative assumptions, to be 400 gigawatts (GW). That is roughly the total capacity of all solar photovoltaic installations worldwide at the end of 2017

ESMAP seeks to build on the initial success of ENERGYDATA (a data publishing platform that hosts energy data provided by the WBG and other development partners) to develop new apps to respond to existing and upcoming needs from our clients, the private sector, and key development partners, and also consolidate those apps already developed and provide a more standardized user experience. ESMAP proposes to issue a new Master Agreement contract covering the development of new apps, consolidation of existing apps, curation of new and existing datasets, user interface improvements and routine maintenance of the ENERGYDATA site and all its current and future subdomains.

As outlined in ESMAPs Business Plan 2017-2020, Achieving universal access by 2030 will require a step change in the rate of new connections and in levels of investment, particularly in low access countries. Sector-wide programs in the electricity sector are showing better results than what can be achieved using a project-by-project approach. These programs are based on national electricity access roll out plans using geospatial planning and least-cost combinations of coordinated grid and off-grid electrification. The geospatially determined plan in turn anchors the sector investment financing prospectus.

This activity will involve assembling global evidence and analysis on electric mobility programs and their impact on development. The objective is to help countries design electric mobility programs that are successful and effective at achieving their intended development aims across climate, economic, fiscal, and technical dimensions. The scope of analysis will consider (i) private vehicle transport; (ii) public transport; and (iii) freight transport. The firm / organization selected for this assignment will implement 3 core activities: 1. Data and information gathering on the current state of electric mobility around the world – including (i)status of key technologies; (ii) definition of key market participants; (iii) development of a database on ongoing or recently completed pilots or programs; 2. Collection of stakeholder views through interviews and surveys; and 3. Compilation of country case studies on electric mobility programs.
